WHY CHOOSE A VEHICLE WRAP?
Vehicle wrapping is an eye-catching and effective way to market your business. Wrapping your vehicle turns it into a mobile billboard, advertising your product or service every time you are on the road. Not only does a wrap look fantastic to passing traffic but it also looks good when you are meeting with clients or if you are parked outside a job. A high quality wrap will never fail to set you apart from the competition. At Blackpool Signs & Graphics we always design wraps and graphics with one aim - to generate you more business. If you want a quality vehicle wrap that stands out and comes at a sensible price - then you have come to the right place.
WRAP DESIGN - IS IT IMPORTANT?
Design is a very important factor in any wrap. A good design should be instantly recognisable, and should be used on everything from your letterheads to work wear, website to email…..everything that has your company name on it should match. Keep it simple. Simplicity is key to any good design. A well designed wrap should be simple and straight to the point, why over complicate your vehicle with unnecessary information? Remember you have approximately 3-5 seconds to capture viewers' attention. That's not to say that you can’t add ‘accreditation logos’ etc just don’t make them too over-powering.
Keeping It Simple - 3 things to tell your customers
- Who you are. (Generally your company logo)
- What you do. (A simple straight to the point tag line)
- How to contact you (Telephone number, address, website, or Facebook logo)

HOW IS A VEHICLE WRAP PRODUCED?
We only use the finest wrap vinyls and solvent inks on the market. Don’t confuse our wraps with some of the low quality ones that you see on the market.
So now that we’ve designed you a striking artwork with a very clear and concise message we now have to produce the wrap for your vehicle. Our graphics are printed using the latest solvent printing technology. Solvent printers use solvent chemicals in the ink (a little like paint) which bond to the surface of the vinyl once dried. Our printer is the best on the market, which prints at 1440dpi. We can print detail as small as the eye can see.
Once printed we allow the vinyl to ‘Outgas’ for up to 48 hours. This lets the solvent ink settle and the gasses disperse. Now its time to laminate. Every wrap we produce is laminated without question, this is the only way to produce a quality wrap. Lamination finishes the print with a high gloss (paint like) finish. The laminate protects the printed vinyl from bleaching and discolouration from the suns UV rays. The lamination process also stops abrasion from chemicals and protects the print from scratches.
Next is a deep clean. Each vehicle is cleaned to remove dirt, grime, wax, silicon, grease etc. Each vehicle is hand washed at least twice over before it is brought into our vehicle area. Once inside and undercover we clean all recesses, door gaps, fuel caps with methylated spirits at least twice over removing any residue, build up of dirt, grease, wax etc. Next stage is the final deep clean stage. We again go around the whole vehicle including wheel arches, door sills, using isopropyl alcohol.
Each wrap is installed by qualified wrap technicians. Each wrap is installed by hand as is a very time consuming and labour intensive process. We start every wrap by evaluating the vehicle and deciding the best way to install the wrap. At this point we decide which parts of the vehicle to remove before we start the wrap. This normally includes items like side trim, aerials, door mirrors, badges etc. Now the vehicle is ready to have the graphics applied.
Each vehicle is wrapped by a team of expert fitters. We fit the vinyl by moulding, heating, stretching and shrinking the vinyl to fit the vehicle. Once the vinyl has been put down onto the vehicle it is then trimmed by hand and folded neatly around corner and door gaps. If the vinyl has been wrapped into a deep recess it is then super heated to set the memory of the vinyl. This stops the vinyl popping out at a later date.
How long does the wrap process take?
This depends on the size of the vehicle. Generally the larger the vehicle the longer it takes to wrap. A smart car generally takes a x2 man team 1 day to install. Larger vehicle like a double decker bus normally take around a week to install.
